Bathroom To-Do List

Bathroom Cabinet

We have brought the bathroom finish percentage up to being 72% done. Here is our list, updated, that I posted previously:
1) Install sheetrock in all areas which need it.
2) Finish raising tub room ceiling
3) Finish insulating bathroom (small places which we haven’t got yet)
4) Connect the wall of tub room to the roof (yes the builder did NOT do this!) This will be done by building a small triangular 2 x 4 frame to extend from wall to ceiling. We have all the lumber cut, just need to put together.
5) Add shiplap siding to triangular 2 x 4 frame on exterior wall to get rid of the junk board that was used.
6) Float sheetrock
7) Paint all walls
8) Install new flooring
9) Paint and add molding
10) Install new light for main bathroom area (which we still have yet to get)
11) Hang new mirror (after we buy one - BOUGHT)
12) Hang new door and paint it
13) Rebuild sink cabinet (should be able to do mostly with boards we have around here)
14) Add a new upper cabinet - decided not to do this
15) Move tub water lines to new spot
Yesterday Brian finished building the cabinet, and laid the countertop surface down. Between yesterday and today we have laid the flooring for the main bathroom, but the tub room still needs to have the tile laid. We will do that the same time we lay the stone on the countertop. Its actually more of an accent since the countertop will be bordered in wood.
He used small planks of red oak that we had around here and put them together via a frame. I painted it and we are supposed to work on getting the countertop on tomorrow. We will see.....
Anyway you can see in the above photo the cabinet Brian built.

Looking good, Jessica! I love those tiles! I picked up a square foot of those sames ones a few months ago because I was thinking (at the time) to use them as a kitchen backsplash. I can't wait to see what it looks like in your bathroom.

Brian is a great carpenter...Great job!

That list is getting smaller and smaller:)

Hey Kim ~ hehe Brian thanks you, he was pretty happy with how his little cabinet tunred out that he was semi-regretting having to part with it.
They are cute, and they go good with the sink cabinet he made.
Well I better go...have some packing to do.
Thanks for dropping in!

Wow, you've been busy! Looks great thus far. I'm sure it'll be gorgeous when you've got it all done. Keep up the great work, Jess! :)
